Better late than never!
A bit late, I know but Happy New Year Everyone! Thank you for all your kind get well messages and Christmas/New Year wishes. I hope that you all had a wonderful time.
I am looking forward to catching up and seeing what you have all been up to.
I have just recently returned from having spent Christmas and New Year with my family in France. I also popped over to Belgium.
Starting a New Year is a chance to reassess things in your life and reflect on the previous year. Like many of you, I have made my list of resolutions, it's quite long .... Somehow beginning a new year helps re-enforce your intentions, which is not a bad thing.
Bruges (in 3d)
One of many chocolate shops in Bruges
Miss P and I on a mission to buy some freshly made waffles
I always go to this place to buy waffles. The aroma is wonderful as you walk in.
Their freshly made waffles taste almost as good as the ones my Aunt Suzy and My Grandmother Gaby used to make. These waffles taste nothing like the supermarket ones! Soooo much nicer.
You can't beat the smell and taste of a real Belgian waffle
The Christmas Market was still there a few days after Christmas
Pretty tins full of chocolates
The chocolate shops always have such fantastic window displays
Belgian chocolates ...the best in the world... Chocolate Line is one of my favourite chocolate shops
Meanwhile back at home, it's looking like this and with more snow on the way forecast. Miss P is delighted by this, no school today because of hazardous access to the school!

The fire has been lit every day since coming back. It is such a welcome sight when coming in from the cold. I have just restocked the log basket and coal bucket ready for the heavy snowfall they are predicting.
Off to relax a bit by the fire and do a spot of crochet. I started a couple of crochet projects whilst away. More in a future post.
